Since I don't listen to songs except in my car, and I don't have mobile access to the forum, I will never be able to answer this question.

A bunch of songs I've never heard before.  I've been listening to a bunch of "Best Indie Folk of ____" (insert year) compilations on YouTube.  They make good background music, but certainly nothing that might keep me awake on a road trip.

Anything on the organ is super complicated. Then again, haven’t most churches by now ditched the organ unless they are super traditional?

A decent number in my area have them. Of course, the area I live in was one of the earliest places settled in the US, specifically the 1640s.

I could see more traditional mainline churches having them, but a lot of newer and nondenominational churches have ditched anything “traditional” to be more seeker friendly.

Our church no longer uses the organ, but that change happened before we made the switch from orchestra & choir to guitar-led band.  When our organist left the church, there was no one in the congregation to replace her.

"Necessary" is a really squirrely word.  The fact that plenty of churches have traditional music and orchestration doesn't negate the fact that plenty of people want nothing more to do with that music and are, in fact, turned off by it.  It is not culturally a part of who they are.

For the record, I've sung in church choirs and played in church orchestras.  I've arranged hymns for choir and still do on occasion.  And I also currently play drums in a guitar-led band in church every Sunday.  I have a deep appreciation for traditional Christian music and hymnody, and I worry that we've thrown the baby out with the bathwater during the traditional-to-contemporary music shift.  But I also understand that music is a very subjective thing that touches us on an emotional level.  If worshippers are emotionally disengaged from the music used in their worship, then I believe that's an issue to be addressed.  No, I don't believe that a person's religious life is all about emotion, but music specifically has a large emotional aspect that should not be ignored.

I also understand that what we consider "traditional music" was at one time "contemporary music"—centuries ago in Europe.  I personally know how to read Gregorian chant notation and enjoy hearing a good schola cantorum, but it would be silly to expect all churches everywhere to sing a cappella in parallel fifths in medieval Latin.  I think it's similarly silly to expect all churches everywhere to sing four-part organ-led translated European hymns.  A missionary in the Congo shouldn't expect Christians there to only use traditional classical Western music in worship, and we likewise shouldn't expect Christians here to do so either.

Mormons still use organs.  Electric ones.

Naughty boy.  Isn't everyone supposed to pretend that Mormons aren't "Mormons" now?  Or is there just a widespread but unspoken consensus that it isn't worth the extra ten keystrokes?



I'm currently listening to the Herbert Grönemeyer album Bleibt Alles Anders on YouTube.  Annoyingly, it's a relatively unknown album and I can't find it as a playlist.  So, instead, I'm searching for each song track-by-track.

Saying I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ means that people could mistake me for being a member of one of the Protestant sects named "Church of Christ" or its variants.  And writing out, "I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" is just...tiring. :D

I think were in agreement here. Maybe I was a little too broad, to clarify, what I see happening with the ditching of traditional music for a contemporary model is happening primarily in "evangelical churches" (whether that would be Non-denominational, Baptist, etc, I get that is a broad term as well). I think we should be exposed to a wide variety of music from all the different centuries. Honestly, for me, it's not the style of music, it's more so the content of the lyrics of the song that I care about. Sadly, a lot of modern Christian music is very shallow, superficial and in some cases heretical.

But I don't think we're allowed to talk about religion on this forum so I'll have to end it here.

Something that has surfaced during Covid, because many churches are streaming services:

You can generally play, record and stream the old hymns, because most of the time they are now public domain.  You might have to watch whether an arrangement is legal.

But for the more recent* music, you need to be covered by a variety of licenses, with add-ons (at additional costs, of course) for streaming.  With a lot of rules to follow.

* It doesn't even need to be that all recent, since copyrights are generally good for 70 years after the life of the author/composer/etc.

I found an Arabic version, I don't speak Arabic, but it's pretty catchy!

"Elephant Talk" by King Crimson

Nice! 80's Crimson is my favourite era. Have you listened to Absent Lovers: Live in Montreal? If not, I'd recommend giving it a listen, it's got a ton of great tracks and most are arguably played better than on the studio albums.

To answer the question, right now I'm listening to Before We Knew by Day Wave, a single just released today.

The 16th volume of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series was released last month..covering his sessions from 1981-1985... a period previously thought to be one of his weakest.  The outtakes and alternate versions make me think that's an incorrect feeling though....
As such, I have been heavily rotating these songs and the originally released album versions...

Right now, it's the 11 minute "Brownsville Girl" and its original, the 12 minute "New Danville Girl"

That song by Edison Lighthouse (they were a British band BTW, though I’ll note that the actual lighthouse is called Eddystone, and that there’s a borough of the same name in SEPA) that has since been featured on TikTok for whatever reason. It starts off like a country song (Danny Flowers may have heard it and wrote 1978’s Tulsa Time, a hit for Don Williams that same year, as a partial response to it), then becomes a cross between the Beatles’ 1968 return-to-the-roots Lady Madonna (which in itself is a tribute to Fats Domino, who made it his last charting smash that same year) and the Kinks’ classic from 1967 Waterloo Sunset (a tribute to rock and roll on the Mersey). There are also parts of this song that sound like some inspiration for the Bee Gees’ 1977 smash How Deep is Your Love from SNF. Which isn’t too surprising.

Earlier, I was listening to “One Last Kiss” by J. Geils Band. It was one of the better songs they put out in the 70s.

It was their debut single for EMI (off their “Sanctuary” album from 1978), and works as a ‘breakup song’ for their time at Atlantic Records, intentional or not. I love the guitar work on the song, it probably ranks as some of Geils’ best.

Apparently, the band was in Jacksonville back in 1975 (during their Atlantic years), supporting the Stones on their tour of North America (technically, both the United States and Canada) that year (it was supposed to include the rest of the Americas, but they weren’t able to tour that much). Supposedly, they were one of the opening acts, along with Atlanta Rhythm Section (a hot local favorite, though this wasn’t during their peak career, despite being formed from two different bands, one of whom was from around here, the Classics IV, known for their versions of classics (excuse the pun) such as “Spooky” (their own version came out at the end of 1967 and was a hit early in 1968), adding lyrics to an instrumental from 1966/1967 by sax player Mike Shapiro (who had recorded it under the stage name of Mike Sharpe); later ARS themselves would redo the song for their “Underdog” album released in 1979) and Rufus (from, where else, Chicago). Of course, this was before my time, when the Gator Bowl was still around, which is now partly contained within TIAA Bank Field.

J Geils is the guitarist. Their singer/frontman was Peter Wolf. The best name in the band is, of course, the harmonica player. Don't follow the band, but I don't think it's much different than Van Halen dumping DLR and then Sammy Hagar or the revolving singers in Fleetwood Mac and Santana.

The issue I was getting at was still calling themselves the J. Geils band even though they kicked J. Geils out (and has since died). It would be like the remaining Allman Brothers Band members still touring under that name with Gregg and Duane Allman now both dead.

Quite by coincidence, in light of recent events, I've been listening a lot to the Emerson, Lake, and Palmer performance of "The Great Gates of Kiev". This is from their "Pictures at an Exhibition" album, based on the original work of classical Russian pianist Modest Mussorgsky.

ELP's progressive rock adaptation added, among other things, vocals to Mussorgsky's purely instrumental work. For "Great Gates of Kiev", the lyrics ended with this lament (with the bombastic pseudo-profundity common in ELP's work):

     There's no end to my life
     No beginning to my death
     Death is life!
